    Hi,

    You could use a free host/server to do the job for you.

    You can try http://www.bravenet.com or http://www.bravepages.com they are really good. They have mailing lists, e-mails subscriptions and many, many other free features.

    Good luck,

    1. What is your current host? (free, paid)
    2. What does your host support? (IIS, Apache, Postgre. MySQL, CGI access, etc.)
    3. What is your experience level?

    The ideal way to get a mailing list and e-mail subscription is to Google the kind of script you want and install it yourself. I tend to stay far, far away from things like Bravenet and other such services that tend to be slow and chocked with ads. To learn how to run and install thesee scripts are not too bad. A lot have a nice web-based setup

    One place I go to get scripts is www.hotscripts.com

    Hope this helps

    Dude, try finding yourself a LAMP server somewhere. Those are the best to create dynamic websites on.

    LAMP >> Linux Apache Mysql Php

    If you have those things on a server. Then you are ready to go. The mailing list can easily be build with PHP and MySQL. THere are prolly allready out there. Just check www.sf.net for such things, if you dont feel like creating the software yourself.

    If you do, I would recommend getting some good books and start learning PHP and MySQL. First go to www.php.net, and go from there. When you get the hang of PHP, then MySQL isnt that far away.
    Bleh.
